  • Olivier MÜLLER

    Olivier MÜLLER

    Olivier Muller is 32 years old and studied history of film aesthetics and history of the film industry and economics at the university of Lausanne, Switzerland. Since then he's been active in underground film clubs until he founded the NIFFF (Neuchatel Int'l Fantasy Film Festvial). He loves all kinds of film, not only the fantasy genre. What he likes about fantasy is that, to him cinema in general is an art of manipulation, and since fantasy and science-fiction have very often relied upon technical tricks, he thinks that they are in fact true ambassadors of cinema. That doesn't prevent other directors and genre to make real cinema. He loves directors who tell very basic and absolutely not fantastic stories but use a lot of stylistic and narrative devices to tell them, such as R.W. Fassbinder, Jaques Tati and Yasujiro Ozu.
